I know someone who actually does use a smoke detector to indicate that his steak is ready to be taken off of the indoor grill.  I thought that he was kidding me until I witnessed him doing it.  He likes them extremely well done, to the point of actually being to the point at which you can actually hear the meat crack when he cuts it with a knife.  I suppose that tastes differ greatly, because I am the exact opposite.  I like mine to be just beyond the mooing stage.  In restaurants, they purposely cook them just a bit less done than you order them.  The reasoning is that if a steak is not done enough to your liking, it can be cooked a bit more.  If it has been overlooked, they will have to cook another one for you.  With this in mine, I always order them extra rare.  They usually come out close enough to my liking.
